Early life

Red Café is a Brooklyn, NY rapper. His nickname "Red" was his father's nickname; "Red Café" is what was stamped on bags of his drug merchandise.

His song All Night Long was included on the 2005 Coach Carter soundtrack. As an underground rapper, his work is not internationally recognized, though he has been rapping on the circuit since the late 1990s.
